Liangjiang New Area will construct the “1+3” high-end equipment industry cluster. It aims to build China's largest industry base of shale gas equipment by developing the entire industry chain covering shale gas prospection, exploitation, operation and professional materials, with the focus on achieving breakthroughs in analysis equipment, fracturing trucks, drilling platforms, special drilling rigs for surface and drillable bridge plugs.
It will promote marine generator sets-based wind power outfit and core components, and propel the research and production of gas power sets, stimulating key equipment manufacturing. It will build western China's largest industry base of rail transportation equipment, with the focus on manufacturing monorail trains, metro vehicles, rapid urban rail vehicles and other promising equipment, thus achieving production localization of electrical traction systems, signaling systems, bogies, braking systems, door systems and other key components.
It will also develop intelligent manufacturing equipment, especially the complete sets of numerical control machines, smart instrumentation, industrial robots, and smart grids, while developing environmentally-friendly equipment with the focus on the manufacturing of complete sets for urban sewage and high-concentration industrial organic wastewater treatment, as well as for atmospheric pollution and urban waste and sludge treatment. During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, a total of 60 billion yuan has been invested in this industry, and the high-end equipment industry cluster is expected to achieve an output value of 80 billion yuan, which accounts for nearly 1/5 of the city's total output.
Chongqing lies at the convergence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers.
